Shale Gas and the Future of Canada's Chemical Valley
An audio interview with Zak Nicholls, a human rights activist who lives in Sarnia, Ontario, Canada.
In this interview, Zak speaks about:
- Nova Chemicals, and how this company plans to use shale gas — for decades
- A related BioAmber facility which will be processing a substance that is similar to the GHB rape drug
- Labour concessions which are connected with these projects
- The Lambton Generating Station, and the possibility that it will be burning ‘natural’ gas (shale gas?) in the future
